Pico datalogging software for Raspberry Pi
Pico Technology has announced what the company believes to be the first ever fully supported software package for the popular and inexpensive Raspberry Pi single-board computer.
Optimized and tested on the new Raspberry Pi 4, and the current 3B and 3B+ on Raspbian Stretch, the PicoLog 6 data logging software package provides a visual, easy-to-use interface allowing engineers to quickly set up simple or complex acquisitions and record, view and analyze data. It’s the same fully functioning software that runs on Windows, macOS and Linux.
Coupled with a Raspberry Pi, this new PicoLog 6 package expands the flexibility and opens the door for Pico’s data loggers to be used in new and different ways. Users c an now connect the logger to the Pi and remove the keyboard, mouse and video to make an inexpensive stand-alone logger storing its captured data locally on a Pi SD-Card. Connecting the board by WiFi or Ethernet, one can internet-enable the Pico logger which can then be accessed remotely using an open-source VNC server and viewer freely available. Using the Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability on the Raspberry Pi 3B+ paired with the PoE PiHAT not only eliminates the need for an external power supply and powered USB hub, it also internet-enables the logger at the same time.
